Do You Suffer From Multiple Twitter Personality Disorder?

Multiple Twitter Personality Disorder
From Twikipedia, the (almost) free encyclopedia
Not to be confused with Dissocial Media personality disorder.
“Split Twitter personality” redirects here. For other uses, see Split twitter personality (disambiguation).
Dissociative twitter identity disorder (DTID) is a psychiatric diagnosis and describes a condition in which a person displays multiple distinct twidentities (known as twalter egos or twalters), each with its own pattern of perceiving and interacting with the social media environment.
In the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Twhealth Problems the name for this diagnosis is multiple twitter personality disorder. In both systems of terminology, the diagnosis requires that at least two personalities routinely take control of the individual’s behavior on twitter with an associated memory loss that goes beyond normal forgetfulness; in addition, symptoms cannot be the temporary effects of drug use or a general medical condition. DTID is less common than other dissociative disorders, occurring in approximately 1% of dissociative cases. and is often comorbid with other disorders, such as SEO obsessiveness or Social Media Conjunctivitis
There is a great deal of controversy surrounding the topic of DTID. The validity of DTID as a medical diagnosis has been questioned, and some researchers have suggested that DTID may exist primarily as an iatrogenic adverse effect of therapy. DTID is diagnosed significantly more frequently in North America than in the rest of the world, in particular California.
Signs and symptoms
Individuals diagnosed with DTID demonstrate a variety of symptoms with wide fluctuations across time, although the existence of time is open to debate; functioning can vary from severe impairment in daily Facebook status update functioning to normal or high abilities, such as +1. Symptoms can include:
• Multiple mannerisms, attitudes and beliefs which are not similar to each other, usually identified by separate twitter account user names
• Unexplainable headaches and other body pains, especially in the right forefinger (or “mousefinger”)
• Distortion or loss of subjective time
• Depersonalization (the loss of the original personality ie. that of the bullied schoolboy with his (sufferers are primarily male, although some females have been diagnosed) head being flushed down the lavatory, often being replaced with the “Belini-Gallileo Effect” – a belief that the world revolves around them, instead of the sun).
• Derealization – an inability to walk outside and take in the beauty of a flower on a warm summer day, due to this activity not producing any significant search result improvements
• Severe memory loss of anything
• Depression
• Flashbacks of abuse/trauma associated with closed-down social media accounts
• Sudden anger without a justified cause (see “SEO obsessiveness” above)
• Frequent panic/anxiety attacks about account closure or lack of rewteets
• Unexplainable phobias of other SEOs
• Auditory of the personalities inside their mind
• Paranoia
Patients may experience an extremely broad array of other symptoms that may appear to resemble epilepsy, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, and eating disorders (typically embodied by an over-consumption of aspartame via Diet Coke, Pepsi Max and similar beverages plus the desire to buy a cisco router for no apparent reason)

  1. I must admit I use several different Twitter accounts and use them differently depending on which account I’m using at the time. I’ve thought a few times I need to regularize how I communicate via social media.

  2. You need to get out more…

    1. haha. I’m never in! This is what happens when you stop smoking and find yourself bouncing around at 6am

  3. They say that time is a great healer, as previous patients with compulsive MySpace disorder can tell you. Sir Clive Sinclair is a great inventor but none of his gizmos lasted and some never took off. Twitter, like the Zike and ZX Spectrum will be popular for a few more months. The real clever thing is to forecast how people will spend their idle hours when the Twitter novelty wears off. I like to call this the After the Novelty of Twitter, or ANT time.
    If character counts of (say) 150 characters are popular then perhaps a new Casio wrist watch with the Casio version of Twitter would be good. How about posting phone text messages to a site? Let’s call it (say) SMS messaging?
